Extra green waste collections for Berowra, Berowra Heights and Hornsby Heights
The storm on Friday 8 February has hit some areas in our Shire hard and there is a lot of green waste to get rid of, particularly in Berowra, Berowra Heights and Hornsby Heights.
As an immediate response our teams were out there last weekend and helped to re-open roads … but we know there is more work to do. We have now managed to organise an extra one-off green waste clean-up for the above suburbs.
As of Monday 25 February our teams will come through and pick up any storm generated oversize green waste, such as fallen tree debris and large branches, from verges in Berowra, Berowra Heights and Hornsby Heights.

Over one third of Hornsby Shire residents live close to bushland reserves and National Parks. There are many actions that can be undertaken at the personal level to contribute to bushfire preparation and management.
